Crescent ♋ Cancer
Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 1 day on 28 August 2070 at 22:41.
Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.
Lunar disc appears visually 3.6% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1971" and ∠1901".
Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2070 after 20 days on 20 September 2070 at 07:47.
There is low ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at big angle, so their combined tidal force is weak.
The Moon is 23 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 873 of Meeus index or 1826 from Brown series.
Length of current 873 lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 37 minutes. It is 2 hours and 56 minutes shorter than next lunation 874 length.
Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 7 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 2 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠40.1°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠66.1°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep increasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of apogee (∠180°).
Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 22:39, this is 15 days after last apogee on 15 August 2070 at 17:17 in ♐ Sagittarius. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 13 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 12 September 2070 at 12:02 in ♐ Sagittarius.
This perigee Moon is 368 889 km (229 217 mi) away from Earth. It is 6 381 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 1 467 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
5 days after its descending node on 25 August 2070 at 10:33 in ♈ Aries, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 7 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 7 September 2070 at 08:29 in ♎ Libra.
19 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♎ Libra, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
At 07:55 on this date the Moon is meeting its North standstill point, when it will reach northern declination of ∠18.509°. Next 13 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite southward direction to face South declination of ∠-18.435° in its southern standstill point on 13 September 2070 at 00:50 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 5 days on 4 September 2070 at 18:29 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
